Builder and Small Business Entrepreneur
Jack brings more than 30 years experience as a CEO, real estate developer, businessman, and legislator. From Des Moines’ East Village to the flood-ravaged streets of Cedar Rapids, Hatch Development Group provides affordable housing where it’s most needed, in existing neighborhoods that benefit from redevelopment.
Together with his wife Sonja, Jack founded Hatch Development Group, a company that builds affordable housing in often-ignored neighborhoods. Working with neighborhood leaders, city and county officials, lenders and investors, Jack designed, built, and manages eight housing communities. Jack understands a key to Iowa’s economic growth is vibrant communities – large and small. It’s time to put that experience to work for all Iowans.
